Eastern Michigan vs. Penn State: Joe Paterno Takes The Field

It looks like Joe Paterno is going to give it a go down on the sidelines today. He walked out of the tunnel with the team after spending warmups down there, so we'll see how long he can last.

Brandon Beachum is down on the sidelines but in street clothes. He's still wearing a boot on his sprained ankle. We'll see if he makes it back next week for Penn State's Big Ten opener at Indiana.

Penn State won the toss and deferred.Students are filing into the stands slowly.

Eastern Michigan takes the ball into Penn State territory on a couple of wide open roll out passes.

There's Devon Still for a big stop on second down. He smothers the Eastern Michigan rusher for a loss of three on the Eagles' first run play of the game. Penn State forces an incompletion on third down and will now take the ball.
